Rivers State: Governor, Fubara Shares His Next Action To End Political Crisis With Wike


Amid the political crisis with his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, who is currently the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), River state governor, Siminalayi Fubara, in an exclusive chat with Africa Independent Television (AIT), revealed how eager he is to restore peace in the state.

Recall that earlier before now, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu intervened in the issue, and both parties were made to sign an agreement, due to the rift between them, but it continued.

In the recent interview with AIT, governor Fubara, stated that his intention towards Rivers State people before contesting for the position was positive, and was not hinged with the motive to acquire power for tussle or intimidation.

Speaking further, he revealed that no sacrifice is too big for him to pay in other to see the administration successful. Even if it requires him resigning.


His words partly;

“If leaving this position is what I need or what is needed to bring more peace in this state, I can even tell the people to come and take it. It is not about me. People should understand that definitely I’m here, I will go but Rivers State will still remain.

“I am the governor. No matter what it is, there are things I could have done and there would have been a total crisis, but the ability to restrain in the face of crisis when you have the power to do things is maturity.”
